Penfolds Bin 2 Shiraz Mataro is a beguiling blend, renowned for its rich, full-bodied flavour and deep, passionate red hue. An amalgamation of spicy Shiraz and earthy Mataro presents intense plum, black cherry and complexing spicy notes. Barrel ageing contributes to velvety tannins, giving a refined, oaky finish. Bin 2's intoxicating blend pays homage to Penfolds’ enduring house style and commitment to wine craftsmanship, fusing Australian wine-making history with modern innovation. Suited for medium-term cellaring, it offers an opulent, invigorating experience, ideal for those relishing complex, layered wines. This wine makes a suave companion for savoury dishes, enhancing gastronomic delight.
NOSE - The aromatics are dominated by brightly lifted red fruits of cranberry, red currants and rhubarb. Scents of freshly sliced cured meats and black olive tapenade provide a savoury nuance. Underlying spice is derived from oak maturation, evoking sumac and cardamom. PALATE - The enticing aromatics are amplified on the palate. Loose-knit and lacy tannins provide structural foundations, with juicy red fruit acidity giving rise to a balanced medium-bodied wine. Further complex savoury characters of roasted celeriac and fresh vegetable consommé create another level of complexity.
About the Winery
Established in the heart of Adelaide in 1844, Penfolds winery is one of Australia's oldest and most renowned wine-producing estates. Over the centuries, this impressive winery has crafted an invincible reputation for producing wines of exceptional quality, notably its world-famous Grange and St. Henri Shiraz.
Thomas Penfold and his wife Mary embarked on wine production at their Magill Estate after immigrating from England. Penfold’s initial intention was to craft fortified wines in the style of those he admired in Europe, specifically, his cherished homeland. However, over time the potential for producing quality table wines was realised and Penfolds has since become a global icon.
Among the winery's remarkable collections, the most celebrated offering is undeniably the 'Penfolds Grange'. This Shiraz wine, crafted by the pioneering winemaker Max Schubert is among the most coveted and enduring labels on the global wine stage. Known for its rich intensity and remarkable longevity the Grange is synonymous with prestige in the world of wine.
Nestled amongst the rolling Adelaide Hills, the winery is a sight to behold. With its distinctive historic charm, juxtaposed with cutting-edge wine-making techniques, Penfolds has managed to maintain an enchanting balance of tradition and innovation. Visitors are greeted by lush vineyards, meticulously tended to ensure the production of quality grapes. A walk through the Penfolds cellar door is an immersion into history; as each stone and barrel tell tales of wine craftsmanship honed over centuries.
